Man dies in Harvey shooting

HARVEY, La. (AP) - Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies are investigating a shooting death of a 47-year-old man in Harvey.

Col. John Fortunato said the victim, identified as Ross Jackson, was shot shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday as he rode his bicycle through a neighborhood.

Fortunato said the unidentified man's body was found in an empty lot in the 1600 block Estalote. He was pronounced dead on the scene from multiple gunshot wounds.

Fortunato says investigators found a trail of 45-caliber shell casings along the street, leading them to believe the victim was chased as he was shot.

Deputies have not determined a motive for the shooting.
